Local Foods

As an active member of the Food Matters Coalition, Transition Brockville provides this Local Foods directory in support of sustainable, healthy lifestyles.

This directory is weighted toward locally-owned and -controlled operations in Brockville and surrounding areas. For those growing their own gardens, it provides links to businesses selling seeds and seedlings as well as links to numerous How-To sites.

Important Notice about Community Gardens

Under the provincial COVID-19 Emergency Order, only gardens with the capacity to follow specific requirements are permitted to operate. The LG&L District Health Unit has prepared these safe operating requirements for local municipalities and community organizations. In addition, rules and guidelines for community gardeners have been developed and should be followed by all users.

Wendy’s Country Market

Wendy’s Country Market is a family business run by sixth generation farmer, Wendy Banks:

“Wendy’s Country Market, is located in a 19th century heritage school house on my parents’ farm, and provides a full country experience complete with animals, pick your own herbs, a seasonal greenhouse and children’s play area. I am proud to say we are selling an ever expanding list of our own vegetables, along with an abundance of produce grown by my parents on their farm, Corn Acre Farms, and food from over 70 local producers. We are open year-round.”

As of October 30, 2020: It’s now time to set our winter hours to give us time to put the gardens to bed and add a greenhouse or two. We will be open Thursdays from 3 pm to 6 pm, Fridays and Saturdays from 10 to 6 pm, and Sundays 10 am to 5 pm.

These new hours also allow us to add a new delivery service to Brockville starting Thursday, November 5th. Thank you to Mom and Dad, Corn Acre Farms, for collaborating with us on this and providing the vehicle. You can order online at http://www.wendyscountrymarket.com as usual, being sure to add your address in the message section for the delivery.

We are sure you will agree that our open-air market was a big hit this spring, summer and fall; however, our fresh produce and hands are finding it too cool now, so we have decided to change things up. Our front entrance is being made functional once again. Interestingly this is the front entrance that was once used as the main entrance for students including Dad almost 70 years ago when it was the Briarhill schoolhouse. Our plan is to allow one group or car of people in at a time to stand in the warm foyer while we retrieve your groceries.

The porch side of the market has been enclosed, making it convenient for non-contact pickups for those who prefer to have their orders prepackaged ahead of time.
